    Have no fear!
    The white threads are adventitious roots. the seedlings first roots designed for grabbing moisture. This usually doesnt happen if you lightly sprinkle the seeds with moss/compost as the seeds are able to get a grip into the soil more quickly.

    Hi guys,

    They are not adventitious roots, they are root hairs, and yes they are for absorbing moisture. Almost all plants produce them (one exception is Orchids) and they help the plant by providing a larger surface are for absorbtion. In some cases fungi live in or around the root hairs providing more moisture and some nutrients in a symbiotic relationship with the. However this is not the case with Sarracenia.

    Adventitious roots are roots that appear after a plant has been wounded or severed. These are the roots that allow us to take cuttings of our favourite plants.

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    I wounded a plant in my living room, and stuck a toothpick in there, and smeared rooting/fugicidal gel on there... Will that grow those adventitious roots, and can i cut off just the roots as root cuttings???

    Are those all sarrs? Like all the green things? What kind?
